Plastic Surgery's Ongoing Position as a Billion Dollar Industry Signals Increasingly Commonplace Status of Procedures in the 21st Century, says Beverly Hills Physicians

LOS ANGELES, April 29, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- An April 10article on Paper reported on a study conducted in 2018 showing that Americans spent $16.5 billion on plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures. Breast augmentation was the most popular procedure, followed by liposuction, rhinoplasty (nose jobs), facelifts, and eyelid surgeries. Overall, 2018 saw a four percent increase for plastic surgery over the previous year. Beverly Hills Physicians (BHP), a health and beauty medical group, says that this increase in spending on plastic surgery by Americans is hardly surprising, as cosmetic procedures and operations have eased into mainstream culture over the decades and become part of everyday life. Popular actors and actresses, singers, and other celebrities have all helped to make plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures far better known, especially as more of them go public with their work. However, BHP also notes that plastic surgery has become significantly more popular among ordinary people as well and word has spread that surgeries are not reserved only for superstars and reality TV millionaire housewives. Mommy makeovers, tummy tucks, and rhinoplasties are all popular choices among celebrities and average Americans alike, the medical group mentions. With several billion dollars being spent on these surgeries and other procedures annually, BHP says that it is probably safe to assume that the vast majority of these operations are not only being obtained by celebrities and the super-rich.Beverly Hills Physicians does note, however, that such a rise in popularity for plastic surgery has a potential dark side, as an increase in popularity has also coincided with an increase in less experienced practitioners with sometimes questionable qualifications. The medical group explains that this problem has led to a corresponding increase in the need for revision procedures and operations to fix shoddy work done by less qualified surgeons. It says that it is of great importance that prospective plastic surgery patients put in the research and make sure they choose a plastic surgery provider that is reputable within the profession. Any cost saving measures now, including visits to foreign nations for cosmetic procedures or surgeries, could result in significantly higher expenses, or worse, in the long run. The medical group adds that, on the other hand, plastic surgery operations and cosmetic procedures have never been safer. In fact procedures such as rhinoplasty and facelifts have been practiced for more than a century with consistently increasing safety and effectiveness over the decades.
